Next Time Some Fool Calls Palin Stupid Remind Them of This Comment
I'd hope most 5th graders would know basic civics better than your average Democratic U.S. senator. If Sarah Palin had made this comment it would be the lead story on MSNBC all week. Since this nonsense was uttered by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) no one will hear about it on ABC, NBC, CBS or CNN. The fact that some percentage of the population still gets their filtered news primarily from those networks is why it is important to note the bias in mainstream news.
In case any liberals are reading this post and don't understand Schumer's ignorance, the three branches of our government are Executive, Legislative and Judicial.
UPDATE: Not really an update, more of an "And Another Thing." We require that applicants for most government jobs take a civil service exam. Why don't we require candidates for federal office take an exam. Is delivering mail that much more important than writing our laws?
